Sedating dogs on planes
You may be able to monitor your pet in-cabin, but what will you do if your pet shows signs of distress?
Also, it is important to keep in mind that the air pressure in-cabin is actually the same air pressure in the cargo hold.
:/ Who says we're not allowed to sedate a cat for flight? In the hold, no, don't drug them as the air pressure is lower than usual and may cause breathing complications.
In the cabin you will want to listen to what your vet says, as it may or may not be okay depending on your pet's health.
Thanks again, Thomas, and good luck with everything!
When flying commercially, they are fortunate their weights allow them in the airliners’ main cabins rather than the cargo hold.
You can also place a T-shirt or something that smells like you in the crate, and many people also try natural/herbal remedies.
Thanks for your question and good luck with your pet travels!

Like you give your pet or a cat a pill or some kind of treatment before flight so that they are calm down because they are not used to flights sedation why do they do it at the vet obviously the vet is a professional but there has to be a way to easily sedate Reply Sedation is neither allowed nor recommended.
Rather, crate training is key to helping pets feel calm during a flight.
We really cannot stress enough that crate training is the absolute best way to prepare anxious pets for travel.
If you need tips for how to do so (for example, leaving the top off of the kennel first), please visit this page for cats (https:// and this one for your dog (https://
Hello Pet Relocation, I'm taking my cat on the plane but am super concerned about having to take him out at security. My vet prescribed 10mg Acepromazine for my 15.5 Ibs cat but I feel reluctant giving it. Sedatives can interfere with regular breathing and other bodily responses, and pets may react differently and unexpectedly to medications when they are in the air.
